Company Culture

Some people were very friendly while others were extremely unfriendly. In this case of working in schools with children I feel staff should display some level of friendliness.

Support from management

They did make an effort but most times fell short on the follow through. this was particularly apparent with the compensation - who can go unpaid for 2-3 months when they are actively working and asking about the check. The experience was a bit frustrating. However, they were trying to bring the school into this century, implement new programs and foster a positive work environment.

Teamwork

The OT department was standoffish, unhelpful and most times rude. Maybe they didn't like someone new there I have no idea but it was completely unprofessional to treat anyone that way. Lots of last minute notifications of meetings/paperwork due. Dated/broken/dirty materials to work with

Freedom to work independently

Besides needing paperwork and meetings you are pretty much an independent worker.

Internal Communication

I was an independent contractor; so I was never aware of events or even days off unless I specifically asked. I also was not paid for 2 months, this was never explained to me. Even after I left I was contacting HR for 3 months for my last paycheck. The checks were also always wrong.

Career Development

Unsure

Overall compensation for your work

The salary was fair however, you are paid per session so scheduling is important. Also, do not depend on a check for a good two months.

Office / Work Environment

Supplies were always out and dated materials to work with the students

Work-Life Balance

Since it is a school you have holidays off and get out relatively early. depending on your caseload

Company Image

They were trying to make some changes

Job Security

Not sure

Challenging Work

typical paperwork and meetings as expected in any school setting as an independent contractor

Suggestions for improvement

  • Updated equipment or separate areas for therapists to work in so they can bring in their own materials without having them taken by another staff member.

What I like about the company

The students

What I dislike about the company

Some staff, delay in pay and not too concerned when I repeatedly asked about it. Dated and dirty environment.
